The UCF track and field team will send four Knights to Eugene, Ore. after qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor Championships for the seventh year in a row.

Sophomore J'Nea Bellamy leads the Knights with three earned spots: the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes, as well as the 4x100 meter relay.

She cracked the top 12 at the NCAA East Regionals after placing 11th with a time of 11.54 seconds in the 100-meter dash and 12th with a time of 23.28 seconds in the 200-meter dash.

Bellamy, along with senior Kirsten Nieuwendam, junior Briana Vaughn and redshirt junior Christal Peterson, will try to improve their 4x100-meter performance last season, which saw them place 11th at nationals with a time of 44.45 seconds.

They earned the 12th and final berth to qualify for nationals with a time of 44.41 seconds.

NCAA Championships are June 10-13 at the University of Oregon.
